Quick. What time is it? If you’re like most of Apple’s customers you glanced at the top of the iPhone, iPad, or Mac screen. Or, your watch. Fair enough. Telling the local time is about as easy as it gets in the 21st century.
Quick. What time is it in London? Or, Tokyo? Or, Dallas, Texas? That’s when a world clock can be handy except that even on iPhone and iPad it’s not handy (world clock is stuck inside the iOS clock app). On the Mac, well, you need an app for that.
Time Is Money
In this case, getting world time to your Mac’s Menubar doesn’t take much effort and only a few dollars with the app Clockey. It’s a world clock manager that lets you park a bunch of different times and timezones into the Menubar.
What could be easier?
One click gets you a list of times and timezones around the world. Create a favorites list of times and locations for quick access. Everything is visible in the Menubar. Clockey even has customization options, and works with both light and dark themes in macOS Sierra.
Even better, Clockey does exactly what Date and Time in the Mac’s System Preferences does not do. You’re stuck with the basics and not much more.
What’s missing in Date & Time is exactly what you get with Clockey. It’s a world clock so it transcends timezones and displays whatever city and local time you need without having to do a mental calculation. Not bad for a few bucks.
What I miss with Date & Time on the Mac is exactly what I get with Clock on iPhone and iPad. Options. World clock, Timer, Alaarm, Stopwatch, and the wonderful Bedtime app.
What’s not to like? Except that Apple doesn’t put such options on the Mac, so a simple third party app takes up where Apple left off.
